Another cool day in the pines. Kathy had a dog from the animal shelter she wanted to take out for the day so we chose Horton Springs area. While Kathy went up Horton Springs Trail I headed up Derrick Trail and the plan was to meet at Horton Spring. Derrick Trail was in decent shape and not very steep so I made the Highline turnoff quickly. Once on the Highline it’s a super trail and I think some work has been done since last time I hiked it. Making good time I decided to try the Promontory Butte Trail with the goal of getting to the rim. The trail is in rough shape and unfortunately I lost the trail and ended up on some game trails about 200 feet short of the rim. Not wanting to waste too much time headed back to Highline Trail.

Back on the Highline it’s quick hike over to Horton Springs where Kathy was waiting. Only saw 3 people on the Derrick and Highline trail with great weather so it was a very pleasant hike. However, being Memorial Day weekend Horton Springs Trail was somewhat a cluster as expected. Despite that still was able to check out some of the cool cascades on the way down canyon. At least the shelter dog had great time away from the kennel :)
